Hi Leo,
any idea how the objects got lost? Have your tried to use "Find" to see if they are anywhere else in the system for some reason? The uploader should work even if the objects are somewhere else.
Is this a production system?
Best regards

Hi JuergenV,

Maybe It was deleted, I tried the import/export tool and successfully upload the missing object types.

Simply importing the objects is a possible solution.
A disadvantage of this method is that the objects don't have the system extension as the creator any more. Hopefully this will not lead to issues in the future.

Any possible solution. IF Object types are accidentally deleted how can we retrieve the missing object type. I use the backup file for importing the missing object type. I don't know how it will affect the imported missing object types.

This can be resolved by performing the following steps.

1. Remove the Foundation Fieldbus system extension from Admin structure->Administrative Objects->Domains-><SystemName> Domain->System Extensions Aspect.

2. Delete ABB Device Management Foundation Fieldbus object, System Extension from Admin structure->Administrative Objects->Inventory Object->System extensions Aspect type->ABB Device Management Foundation Fieldbus object, System Extension

3. Uninstall the ABB Device Management Foundation Fieldbus software in Aspect server.

4. Install ABB Device Management Foundation Fieldbus software in Aspect server and load the system extension.
